Last night, Project Runway winner and Philly native Dom Streater unveiled her spring/summer 2014 capsule collection at Knit Wit in Rittenhouse. The collection featured the bold patterns and wearable silhouettes that we’ve come to expect from the young designer, all rendered in a lightweight silky faille material (otherwise known as polyester).
Philly native and Moore College of Art & Design grad, Dom Streater, stole the show on October 17th with her Project Runway win. The 24-year-old former hostess was a competitor from the get-go, favoring retro-cum-feminine pieces that caught the eye of Heidi Klum—as well as her fellow contestants. Shoppist got a chance to talk to Streater today about what happened behind the scenes (think people warring over sewing machines), Tim Gunn’s god-like presence, and her fall/winter ’14 collection.
Oh, and Samuel L. Jackson.
